The biggest Arsenal transfer rumour today was that Arsene Wenger was in touch with Sevilla to persuade them to part with the French international centre-back, Sebastien Squillaci.
Well today Sevilla have confirmed the rumours, and also agreed that Squillaci missed the Champions League Qualifier just in case the deal went through. BUT, as seems to be the case every time Arsenal are chasing a player, Arsene Wenger is trying to get the asking price reduced!
Sevilla sporting director Ramon Rodriguez said: “The player asked not to play because of the offer from such a big team but, for the moment, we believe the offer is insufficient and Squillaci is still a Sevilla player,”
According to Sky, Squillaci is valued at around 8 million euros (about £7m). Surely it is worth that price to get an urgently needed central defender?
Just pay the man Wenger, and get Squillaci in the squad for Saturday!
